Msiska’s death huge blow to public service

Share

Secretary to the Cabinet Simon Miti says the death of former Secretary to the Cabinet Roland Msiska has left a huge gap in the public service.

Dr. Miti said Dr. Msiska had a rare talent and acumen of intellectuals with a rare skill of public administration. He added that Dr. Msiska was a manager, an administrator, and a medical doctor with distinguished service.

The Secretary to the Cabinet said this when he led a delegation of senior government officials in visiting the funeral house of the late Dr Msiska in Lusaka today.

“You may wish also to note that Dr. Msiska had very high spiritual morals and he was an apostle. So in him we have lost a man of an impeccable and illustrious servant of the soil.” he said.

And a family representative, Enoch Phiri, said the death of Dr. Msiska came as a surprise to the family.

“To the family, it has come as a shock that he failed to pull through. For us we remember him very well, he has been our pillar in several issues that we have been discussing as a family,” he lamented.

“This is someone whose wise counsel will be greatly missed,” Mr. Phiri added. Dr. Msiska died at Levy Mwanawasa Teaching hospital after succumbing to a three-week-long battle against COVID-19.

  1. Condolences to the Musiska family – May the Lord comfort the family as they mourn the loss of a husband, father, son and our brother in the Lord. We draw comfort that as we lament at his departure from us, we are full of hope as our bother was truly in Lord while with us, that hope is the reason to celebrate the life and commitment of our departed brother into glory, for to live is Christ and to die is gain. Philippians 1: 21.

  2. Rest In Peace Mr Msiska. Thanks for your contribution to Zambia and for trusting our God. In God we trust if we die or not.

  3. What a blow! The righteous perish and no one ponders it in his heart; devout men are taken away and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. These are the words of the prophet Yeshayahu ben Amots. What evil is to befall us that some are being spared from? Let us ponder these things instead of going on as if there is nothing to worry about. Death is painful but the death of the righteous is precious in the sight of God, indeed, the ones who believe in Jesus never die. We empathise with the Msiska family. We pray that God of all comfort will comfort you with the knowledge that he ran a good race and fought a good fight.

  4. We put it in God’s hands. Less weka wamaka. All shall be well. I am praying for my country and its lovely people for God’s protection
